Mad Skillz

A recent list-serve post:
I am trying to help a recent recipient of a BA in philosophy get a job as a research associate in a USA policy think-tank. He needs to explain how the study of philosophy has granted him strong research, proofreading, and editing skills. Perhaps someone could suggest materials available online dealing with this?
Apparently this philosophy student learned to outsource all of his research to others who, in turn, outsource all of their research to others. I would assume that a basic operation for research associates at policy think tanks would be to use such arcane resources as libraries and "the Google" to, y'know, find shit out.
